2017 MLB Win Totals Released


Sign up to receive daily news from VegasInsider

For the 11th straight year, the Atlantis Casino Resort in Reno opened the first MLB season win totals in Nevada and they've posted the Chicago Cubs with the highest total at 95.5 wins. The world champion Cubs finished the 2016 regular season with a 103-58 regular season which easily went over the opening total of 89 wins, a number that was then bumped up several times by bettors.

It's hard to see the Cubs have some kind of World Series hangover because they come into spring training this season looking better than they did last spring, in particular landing Wade Davis as the closer, the one spot where the Cubs had a real concern before renting flame-thrower Aroldis Chapman. Chapman is back with the Yankees, but Davis could actually be an upgrade. In his last three seasons with the Royals as a set-up man and closer he posted ERA's of 1.00, 0.94 and 1.87. He converted 27 of 30 saves last season.

The Cubs also bolstered the bullpen by signing Koji Uehara away from Boston on a one year $6 million dollar deal. Former St. Louis outfielder Jon Jay was also signed to a one-year deal. Their only important departures outside of Chapman were Dexter Fowler signing with the Cardinals and Jason Hammel signing with the Royals.

Another reason for optimism with the Cubs this season is knowing that last years big signing, Jason Heyward, can't possibly be as bad as his 2016 was when he set career-lows for on-base percentage (.306), slugging percentage (.325) and home runs (7). If they get only an average 2017 out of Heyward its a huge improvement and makes them ever scarier for the rest of the National League.

The American League champion Cleveland Indians improved its lineup by signing slugger Edwin Encarnacion away from Toronto and the Atlantis posted them at 92.5 wins, the highest AL total. The Indians deep starting rotation is still in tact and the only key cog from last season missing is Mike Napoli who is still unsigned for 2017. Last season the Indians went 94-67.

Here's a look at all the Atlantis totals which are sure to be rapidly adjusted as bettors look for middle opportunities when other books around the state start posting their numbers. The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook will release theirs on February 21.
